Everton keeper Howard looking forward to Bolton Cup tie

Everton goalkeeper Tim Howard is keen on a long run in the FA Cup.

Everton face Bolton in the FA Cup this Saturday but Howard is confident they can overcome the Championship side.

And he says his team-mates are now eyeing a cup run to win the club's first silverware since the 1995 FA Cup Final.

He added: "Bolton is always a fun place to go for us because, like Wigan and Blackburn, we sell so many tickets because it is close and we travel well.

"They have a new manager and seem to be playing better but we look forward to it.

"The cup has been our friend in recent years and hopefully it will be again. Any time you know Wembley is on the back end of something it feels really good and it motivates us."
